    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    They keep people here so long and raise their salaries so much , that people won't leave because they will never make the same salary in their fields in another company. They hire friends and family and put people into positions for which they are unqualified. It's a very dysfunctional place and is not student friendly.

    Advice to Management

    Hire from the outside. Don't be loyal to incompetent people.

    I worked at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement. Large community. Staff can participate in student activities like concerts, shows, sports games.

    Cons

    Office drama and university politics. Unprofessional human resources department. Unfair treatment of older female administrative assistants. Frequent changes in leadership and restructuring.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Centralized processes (from FL) with local input and management (in CA).

    Continual training opportunities throughout the year provided internally (by ERAU) and remotely. Other training available for free (access to Lynda.com).

    Excellent full-time benefits including free tuition with the university, retirement contribution matching, medical/dental/vision, and PTO accrual that scales over time.

    Cons

    Adult learners with an aversion to technology.

    Salary not commensurate with the high cost of living in San Diego.

    The high cost of living creates a high turnover for entry and midlevel positions.

    Turnover results in new employee training that creates larger workloads for established employees.

    Advice to Management

    Provide COLA in high-cost cities.

    I have been working at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Facilities are new. A lot of investment has taken place to make ERAU look like it is worthy of the high tuition.

    Cons

    Almost any high school graduate who applies can get in, so the quality of the students is mediocre at best. The worst part of working at ERAU has to be the administration however. ERAU is first and foremost a flight training school and the university cannot seem to recognize the difference between a flight instructor and an engineering professor. Tenure is ignored. Faculty needs are overlooked. Dead end job for academics.

    Advice to Management

    If ERAU is supposed to be an academic institution then treat it like one.

    Pros

    Best things are benefits like tuition and retirement

    Cons

    Depending on the program you work in depends on what priority the program is when it comes to budget and research.
